Georgia Tech-Georgia Men’s Hoops Set for Dec. 6

THE FLATS – The Georgia Tech and Georgia basketball teams will play the next game of their long-standing rivalry on Tuesday, Dec. 6 at McCamish Pavilion, with a return game to be played in Athens during the 2023-24 season on a date to be determined.

The teams have endeavored to meet earlier in the season in recent years in order for the games to be played in front of the student body while fall semester classes are still in session. Tech defeated Georgia, 88-78, on Nov. 19 of last season in Athens, 88-78. The scheduled game in Atlanta during the 2020-21 season was cancelled due to COVID-19.

Tech leads the all-time “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate” series in men’s basketball, 106-91, including a 62-27 advantage at home and a 2-2 mark at McCamish Pavilion.

Information on season tickets for the 2022-23 season is available here. More of Georgia Tech’s non-conference schedule will be announced when games are finalized. The Yellow Jackets are scheduled to visit Iowa Nov. 28 for the ACC/Big Ten Challenge and participate in the Fort Myers Tipoff Nov. 21-23. The Atlantic Coast Conference will announce the conference schedules for its teams, complete with dates, times and TV, in late summer.

The Yellow Jackets return eight letterwinners for head coach Josh Pastner’s seventh season on The Flats, including senior point guard Kyle Sturdivant (Norcross, Ga.) and senior center Rodney Howard (Ypsilanti, Mich.) who are Tech’s top two returning scorers. The Jackets’ core includes a trio of rising sophomores in Dallan “Deebo” Coleman (Memphis, Tenn.), Miles Kelly (Stone Mountain, Ga.) and Jalon Moore (Birmingham, Ala.) and junior point guard Deivon Smith (Loganville, Ga.).
